Abstract

Prostatic adenocarcinoma is the most frequently diagnosed carcinoma in the male population; the most common sites of secondary lesions are nodes, bones, and lungs. We report the clinical case of a 58-year-old man presenting with a single metastasis in the left testis after a radical prostatectomy/lymphadenectomy for prostate cancer. CASE REPORT This clinical report focuses on a 58-year-old man with prostate cancer who developed an uncommon single metastasis in the left testis after radical surgery and adjuvant pelvic radiation therapy. CONCLUSIONS Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels are important in the follow-up of prostate cancer. At the same time, physical examination of all possible sites of metastasis and proper evaluation of all signs/symptoms are indispensable in the process of identifying recurrence and for the selection of patients undergoing adjuvant therapy.
